Something Snoop Dog made up. And it caught on.

Well, 'fo shizzy' == 'for sure'
And I'm almost 100% positizzle that 'hizzy for shizzy' isn't actually anything.
----------
Check out this one:  http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=fo'%20shizzle%20my%20nizzle

quoted from that page:  

Snoop Dogg did NOT originate the colliquialism of adding the suffix' -izzle, -eezy, -iggedy and so forth to common everyday phrases. If you actually know your hip-hop history, this type of language originated from "Double Dutch Bus" by the Gap Band. Download it and listen. Frequent examples of such rhetoric are sprinkled across the track.
...
"fo shizzle ma nizzle" is a bastardization of "fo' sheezy mah neezy" which is a bastardization of "for sure mah nigga" which is a bastdardization of "I concur with you whole heartedly my African american brother"
